Hims twwwooo!!!! Our little nugget is two years old y'all! Today he gets wet num nums all to himself & all the scritches & squeezies he can handle... and some he can't.... I didn't have a party hat in my phone picture doodle thing so a top hat will have to do.
Tomorrow marks 2 years since that fateful day when our favorite baby & his siblings crawled their wee tiny little selves out from under my house. While his sissy & brother went on to kitty Valhalla, baby Thor stuck with us & has become the darling of the household. Every morning there are head butts & wet nose kissies, every evening there is good night cuddles & squeezes. He lounges. He plays. He meets us at the door every time we come home from anywhere. He's my sweet sweet baby cat. Day 1
I'm finally able to get into my blog! I've been trying & trying to post but the little plus sign drop down doesn't show any blogs. So I searched & found my way in! Anywho... he's been the ultimate kitty protector since my carpal tunnel surgery. He was nursekitty extraordinaire the first few days after, laying on me to help me sleep, breaking into the bathroom to supervise baths... We caught him being all cute, playing with his ball earlier.

I have no words. This might be the biggest bunch of WTF (outside the political sphere) this year... https://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/this-couple-did-a-maternity-shoot-for-their-new-cat-and-the?utm_term=.ogBRpyDBR#.heaoMPvao You may need some of this:
Okay, so I'm trying to get my mind off the fact that my beloved kitty is very sick (spending the night at the animal hospital undergoing tests), and I ran across this video that made me laugh. Thought y'all would appreciate it: Kind of reminds me of Sheldon Cooper's Mom! P.S. Sorry it's huge
Hey all, I am looking for some tips on helping my cats lose weight. We have 3 total- Kira 9, Mufasa 6, Apollo 4. Kira and Apollo are only about a pound or two overweight, but Mufasa...well he's a big kitty. We took him to the vet recently and he weighed much more than we expected- he's all of 20 lbs! We knew he was big, but wow that number was an eye opener. He is part Maine Coon so he is naturally a little bigger built, but he definitely has too much weight in his belly. We have never free fed them so I do measure out their food and am buying "diet" dry cat food. We are switching one meal a day to quality canned food (can't afford to do strictly canned food). So I guess I'm wondering if there are any toys or special feeders that any of you have tried with good success? Or perhaps a certain brand of cat food? They like to play with just a regular string and laser pointer (but so does the dog so he has to be outside, makes it hard in winter), but it can be hard to keep Mufasa's interest for more than a few minutes, plus Apollo LOVES the string and doesn't really give the other two a chance to play. Any and all tips appreciated *Here's a pic of my big guy, sorry it's sideways!
Even though I am definitely in no shortage of unread books, I thought it would be a good idea to go to Goodwill today. Unsurprisingly, I walked out of there with quite a few books! Here to help me model them today is Murphy, the most handsome book model there could ever be. I got these for such a steal, it was too hard to pass up! In case you can't read the titles from the picture, I got: Collected Stories by Gabriel Garcia Marquez The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (the second book in his Cemetery of Forgotten Books series) Looking for Alaska by John Green Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver Little Bee by Chris Cleave The Lost Daughter by Elena Ferrante All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders Let me know if any of you have ever read some of these books! I am excited to dive into them, although goodness knows when I will ever get all the books on my shelf read.
7 years ago today I had to make the heart breaking decision to get my boy Cooper put to sleep. His girl friend cat Samantha had come over earlier in the day to wait for him at the back door so they could both go for their daily patrol of the neighbourhood. It was getting close to bed time and something stopped me going to bed until I knew Cooper was home safe and sound. He came home but he wasn't safe and sound. My brave boy suffered a clot in his spine which paralysed his back end and somehow he managed to drag himself home to us. Unfortunately the vet was unable to fix him and he went to sleep in my arms with his favourite human my son right there with me. This is Cooper when I got him at 7wks old, he came to me early as the lady who was fostering him couldn't look after him any more, he would sleep on my shoulder and get up to mischief playing with anything he could get his paws on, even if it wasn't a cat toy! He grew from that little scrap to be a big bruiser ! He was a cool cat who would choose to be aloof when he felt like it but would be your best friend in the whole wide world if you had chip shop chips or a donner kebab! He would come running up and try to sit on the plate to get them, tough luck if you put the plate down for anything as you would come back to it empty and Coops licking his lips lol. He would let you pet him on his terms only but when he had enough he would put his paw on your hand and push it away, if you persisted he would give you a warning swipe but never with nails, woe betide you if you still tried he gave you fair warning! He was my sons best bud and spent most of his time with him when he was home, at night he would sleep on the pillow with him snuggling up and keeping watch on his favourite human. Love you Coop's and miss you everyday xx
